Crack Scratchcards in No Time: Advent of Code Day 4's Challenge!

2023-12-04
🚀 Challenge Overview Join us for another engaging coding stream as we tackle Day 4 of the Advent of Code, "Scratchcards." This challenge takes us on a journey through a unique puzzle involving scratch cards and their hidden patterns. Discover how we navigate through this intriguing problem, efficiently organize information, and develop a robust solution. 🔍 Parsing and Structuring Data Dive deep into our process of parsing the puzzle's input, where we transform a complex set of scratch card data into a manageable structure. 🧩 Implementing a Solution Watch as we implement a two-part solution to the puzzle. The first part focuses on understanding the rules of scratch cards and devising a method to calculate their points based on winning numbers. The second part introduces a twist - winning more cards based on matches. We demonstrate how to adapt our approach to accommodate these new rules. ✨ Efficient Problem-Solving Techniques Throughout the stream, we share valuable insights into efficient problem-solving techniques, especially in dealing with unexpected rule changes and complex logic. These strategies are not just applicable to coding challenges but also to real-world programming scenarios. 🔗 Check out my GitHub for the full code: https://github.com/coreyja/advent-of-code-2023 👉 Twitch Channel: https://twitch.tv/coreyja 🗨️ Join our Discord community for live discussions and updates: https://discord.gg/RrXRfJNQJX 📌 Stay tuned for more live coding streams, programming puzzles, and tips.
